R.I.P. Antoine Dominique "Fats" Domino Jr. Sad

Don't think I have ever heard a bad Fats song. Immensly influental on the development of all types of poular music, and of course on Jamaican music, it's hard to think of Ska developing without him and that style of music. It's sad news, but he had a great run, at 89 years old he outlived so many of those he influenced.

..and what I didn't know was (according to wikipedia)...

The Jamaican ska band Justin Hinds and the Dominoes, formed in the 1960s, was named after Domino, Hinds's favorite singer.
